Anyone started shopping ? No but I need to! I'm usually pretty last minute with it every year. I get it all done with a week or two to spare. I always tell myself I'm going to do it earlier next year because I hate the crowds, but every year it's the same.

Do you hang up lights ? Normally yes, but this year we may not. We have plans to move in February so most of our Christmas decorations are packed up.

When do you put up the tree ? Normally we wait until after Thanksgiving to put the tree up but DH and I were doing some cleaning over the weekend. We cleaned out our back storage shed that has our fake Christmas tree in it and brought it inside. I'm thinking I will get him to put it up and I will decorate it sometime this week/weekend. It will definitely be done before Thanksgiving this year.

Anyone started shopping ? no. I have 3 kids with November birthdays so I have to take care of those before I get into Christmas mode. We keep Christmas gifts to a very low level, so I do not have a ton of shopping to do.


Do you hang up lights ? I love Christmas lights! I always put them up on our gazebo.


When do you put up the tree ? usually the last weekend in november, it just all depends how it works out, sometimes it's up on Nov 24 already and sometimes not till Dec 1. I have a fake tree, so I can have it up for a long time.

Do you hang up lights ? We do
When do you put up the tree ? Usually the day after Thanksgiving, although I'm really antsy to start decorating this year!

I am so antsy this year. I think it is all the snow we have gotten that has brought it on .

We have most of our shopping done. Even DH has mine done. (I emailed him my Amazon wish list lol). I still need to buy for him.

Yes, we put lights up in and out.

We try to hold off until the weekend after my birthday (Dec 6), but I'm not sure if anyone in my house will be able to wait that long this year.
